Titles now available on-demand include Jamali Maddix’s documentary series Hate Thy Neighbour; Michael K Williams’ investigation into illicit trade, Black Market; an in-depth series exploring the tattoo scene Needles and Pins; and F*** That’s Delicious, featuring the life and eating habits of “rap’s greatest bon vivant”, Action Bronson.

Channel 4 is promoting this major partnership with 30, 40 and 60 second ads in-stream on All 4 and on social media.
Richard Davidson-Houston, Head of All 4, said: “This is the first time that All 4 has hosted a third-party publisher. Today marks the next stage of All 4’s evolution from being a catch up service to becoming a destination in its own right. VICE and Channel 4 share a commitment to giving voice to the unusual and the unexpected and we are really enjoying working on this partnership together.”
CJ Fahey, General Manager, VICE TV and Studios, EMEA said: “We are delighted to be launching our VICE curated hub on All 4 today. Channel 4 is a great partner for us as we continue in our commitment to increase the reach of our content and find new audiences across a range of platforms and windows. Both Channel 4 and VICE are committed to bringing untold stories and new voices to a wide audience and we are looking forward to reaching even more viewers with our acclaimed and unique programming.
This partnership follows an initial third-party licensing agreement between VICE and Channel 4 which saw four titles available on the All 4 platform for a limited time earlier this year.
